Do you regularly set aside time to review the progress you are making in your business? I believe that it’s a great habit to get into.
Particularly now, at the end of March, after the first 90 days of the year. Spring has officially sprung!
The worst of the winter is behind us, so it’s a great time to conduct your first quarterly review and have a photography business spring clean.
As I explain in this blog, regular business reviews are really beneficial and, if you feel inclined, I’d actually suggest doing them more regularly than quarterly if you can.
I actually do in-depth quarterly reviews plus less detailed weekly reviews. And I also aim to keep a daily journal, although I know this level of detail could seem OTT for some!
But that said, I think if you only manage a review of your business every three months, well, that’s better than never managing to get round to it at all!
Conducting a spring clean of your photography business
If you’ve read this blog about the value in carrying out quarterly reviews you may now be wondering what specifically could you review?
Well, I’ve created a free checklist which you can grab a copy of below, listing 40 things you could consider when giving your photography business a spring clean.
There are suggestions in the checklist relating to everything from your business performance, your marketing and your procedures.
But, I’ll warn you now, this checklist could keep you busy! Not everything on this list will be a five-minute job. But please don’t let the rather long list of suggestions put you off from taking action!
Even if you only do some of the things I have listed in the checklist, it is a step in the right direction and you’ll be able to move forward into the next phase of your business year with more clarity.
